They do seem to get/post more pictures than other outlets.

In Britain? Certainly not in Southern California. If you are out in public here, your image can show up anywhere.

They don't refer to her as Mary MacDonald because that was never her name. Before becoming CP Mary she was Mary Donaldson.

That is one good reason. Smile... Have mercy for my mistake. I actually knew better. I am sitting on my sofa on pain med and preparing for surgery in a couple of days. Waiting for a royal baby does help to pass the time and so does my iPhone. Smile again

This has been through before. It happens every morning and evening there's an increase in activity. If this thread is going to be a play by play of the live feed everyday I think I'll log off until the babies born.

Yes, this is when Twitter / Live feeds are not welcome additions to Royal watching.

But to call her Princess Catherine demotes her status - I think we in the US forget that. The Duchess deserves to be called a Duchess.

Her proper title is HRH Duchess of Cambridge. To call her Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge implies that she's either a divorced or widowed woman, of which she is neither.

She is not a Princess in her own right, nor will she ever be. The way the British system works women who marry Princes become Princess [Husband's Name] unless he has other titles, in which case she uses the female equivalent of those.

It doesn't demote her status so much as gives her a title she doesn't hold. She is not Princess Catherine, British titles don't work that way. She might have been Princess William, but to call her that would be to demote her status, because she is also the Duchess of Cambridge.

Well, she's not Princess Catherine, she's Princess William, but Kate Middleton is not her name, either. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge should be the way she is referred to in print and broadcast reports, I agree.

No need to beat anyone up over commenting on the activity going on in front of the hospital. It may be routine, but not everyone knows that and at some point it will be the real deal. The same with twitter posts. Not all of us have access to the monitor or twitter which will be the first indicators of something really going on....when it eventually happens

No. They will automatically become TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge the moment Charles accends the throne, but it will be necessary for the new King to actually create William the Prince of Wales.

No, British Royalist they will become TRH Dukes of Cambridge and Cornwall. Then Prince William will be created Prince of Wales. Yet Catherine will still be Princess William, Princess of Wales etc.

NGaltzine answered this above me, but I just wanted to add that even when William becomes Prince of Wales, Catherine won't be Princess Catherine, she'll be The Princess of Wales.

She is only Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge if she is divorced. While married her name "Catherine" will never appear in her title until she becomes Queen Consort. Until that that time she has only the female version of her husbands titles.
